Today we wrote Found Poems from The Kite Runner. We did the first “sample” poems together from pages 28 and 29 of the novel. You were to find 8 interesting phrases that you could use to create a 2-stanza, 8-line poem titled “Amir and Hassan”
After this, you began your found poem assignment that you will be posting to your blog next class. You are to write a poem of a minimum of 20 lines. It can be any form, and does not have to be divided into stanzas. Remember that a found poem uses words and phrases from another work – you should not change the words and you are not looking to make lines from individual words – you might as well just write your own poem then 😉 At the end of your poem you include your name, as the author, and then write – as found in The Kite Runner, by Khaled Hosseini. Don’t forget to give your poem a title.
